A couple of seasons back the JET (Jewelry on Etsy Team) had a team challenge called Cabin Fever. Each member of the team had to design a jewelry related piece. The theme of ours was dreaming of somewhere tropical hence the bright colors.
We pulled out our jewelry board and go to work.
We pulled out a handful of glass chip beads in an assortment of colors (red,yellow, orange, red and blue) and howlite leaf beads that we had left over from a previous jewelry project. We didn't want to to finish off the necklace with just the glass beads chips so we pulled out some leather cording to accentuate the piece.
We strung on the all the beads to jewelry wire and then cut the leather cording to a certain measurement. Then connected that to the strung beads. We finished off the piece with silver tone findings and an chain extension.
The piece embodies everything you dream of when your stuck inside during winter and of course cabin fever starts to set in. Don't you agree???
In the end we called this piece, "Tropical Oasis Howlite Glass and Leather Beaded necklace" and can be found here in our Etsy shop.
